    Frontpage News Section Prefixes

    Is it possible to add prefixes to all the news articles to specify what the news is relating to? It's been kind of an annoyance of mine off and on the past couple years, that if you glance at the headlines you don't necessarily know what the article is about. A perfect example is one up there currently "Big 12 Coaches Announce Preseason Poll"
    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...ason-poll.html

    You have to get to the last sentence in the post to know for sure that it's referring to Men's Basketball.
    It would be nice to have something like:
    "MBB: Big 12 Coaches Announce Preason Poll"

    So things like: MBB, FB, WBB, VB, WRS, GYM... etc
    And some generic ones maybe CF for site news/administration, B12 for conference releases, ATH for athletics, ISU for other campus news...

    (kind of like it's forced for this forum )

    Usually they are in the forum list on the right said of the page after the topic, as long as it is in the right spot.

    Re: Frontpage News Section Prefixes

    I understand that it would be easier to see, but it's already labeled on the front page...

    Not if it's posted to front-page news, like all of CW's articles for example. I get what the OP is getting at. Not a big deal, but would be nice. Especially once sports seasons start overlapping.
